Gretchen J.

"I suffered from shoulder, neck and head pains, difficulty looking up and moving my head from side to side. Soon into the TMJ treatment my symptoms disappeared completely 100 percent. I feel good all the time now. Family, friends and coworkers have also noticed the change in me and compliment. Dr. Gardner restored my bite and my smile. You cannot put a price on that!"

Shay M.

"I had unhealthy teeth and was not confident with my smile. I recieved crowns and fillings and after my treatment I was more comfortable and found myself wanting to smile more. It is very obvious that the doctors and nurses know what they are doing and care about their patients. They go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable and always make sure you understand what they will be doing. I have a smile that I'm very happy with and I know how to better take care of my teeth so I can always have this smile. Now I can be happy and really show it. I am very confident with my smile and I am grateful that my teeth are healthy."

Brenda P.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Gardner's ever since he opened his practice in Conroe. Having been previously diagnosed with TMJ, I came with much apprehension when he said he could help me. When I would go to Dr. Gardner for a cleaning, filling, etc., it was always time to get out the bite blocks, mouth closing every few minutes, and on many occasions, having to unlock my jaw.

I had suffered for many years with migraines, neck pain and pure misery trying to sleep. I had been to doctors, chiropractors and pain managers, all to no lasting results.

True to his word, over a period of months and years, Dr. Gardner was able to correct my bite, realigning my jaw and overwhelming improvement.

I knew that I did not want to be on pain pills, and I took too many Anacin's, so to get any relief, was great. But the continued improvement is much more than I had ever expected.

He is true to his word! He can help!!"

John M.

"I had dental implants placed in March 2005 to support my upper and lower denture. Each time I came in, the staff treated me like a special friend. I can now chew my food much better and as a result I do not have the bowel movement problems I used to have before. The teeth do not move around and they look great."

Gina T.

"I had porcelain veneers placed on my front teeth. Before I had this work done, I was very careful not to smile when meeting people. Now I can smile without worrying and can meet people and actually talk to them with a smile. I thank you and your staff very much. You have made me so confident in smiling."

Dennis M.

"I became a patient in 1992. Everyone is very friendly and personable and the office is in step with the newest technology. I had total reconstruction with my teeth and bite in 1995 saving me from dentures. They look so natural and I have a nice smile. I really appreciate the feeling that I am in good hands with every visit."

Linda S.

"I had receding gums, had lost teeth and had migrating teeth. My previous dentist could only "farm" me out to different specialists. I was not happy with them or that process. So I started asking other people about their dentists, calling dentists from the yellow pages and looking them up online. This led me to Dr. Gardner. After he check my teeth and gave his recommendations for repairs, he gave me names and numbers of patients who had similar procedures. All of them praised his work and so do I. It was a long process for me. He had a lot of work to do, but the office visits were always pleasant. His staff is the best and I would recommend him and them to anyone. Today I have a beautiful smile and can enjoy food again!"

Robert H.

"Dr. Gardner’s practice has always been professional, congenial and friendly. The office staff is excellent. My ten implants were placed in the year 1995 to support my dentures. He was meticulous in his work and the implants were positioned perfectly. Anyone who has had dentures without implants knows all the problems that arise, for example: slipping, falling down and unexpected movement. As a college teacher, being able to stand up in front of a class and talk and not worry about my dentures was wonderful, not to mention I can chew again."

Ellen N.

"I had lost my confidence and on the first consultation Dr. Gardner assured me that by the time I had my teeth fixed I would start gaining it back. Sure enough he was right; I feel like my old self. I used to get ready without a mirror, now I look at myself. I'm proud to smile and I love getting compliments on how pretty and white my teeth are. Everyone in the office is very professional, attentive to patients and the communication is excellent."

Arthur B.

"I have been seeing Dr. Gardner since he started his practice in 1992. I would have to say that his practice is outstanding. He is an honest, knowledgeable and caring human being. I have recommended him to my friends and family. My wife and I are most impressed with his concern for his fellow man. We became aware of the volunteer work he does with the St. Vincent DePaul Society of Conroe where he cares for low income patients who could not otherwise receive dental care. I have appreciated Dr. Gardner’s long-term outlook in concern for my health. He routinely gives me a thorough oral cancer examination and identified a suspicious lesion on my pallet, fortunately, the growth was benign. Over the years I have had many dental problems, including gum disease, extractions, root canals, crowns, bridges and implants that needed bone grafts. All of these procedures were done with Dr. Gardner’s expert technical and knowledge. All of these have improved the quality of my life and overall health, especially the fact that I no longer have to wear partial dentures, which I found very difficult to chew with."

Richard S.

"Dr. Gardner and his staff are very professional and courteous. They are very good at staying on time with my appointments. I was very happy when I received my implants in 1993. I had very little pain afterwards and they really made my dentures stable. It changed everything for me. Before, there were certain foods I could not eat because my dentures moved around. I have had no problems and they are very low maintenance."

John H.

"Dr. Gardner and his staff provide excellence and professional care. Dental implants were the best move I ever made for dentures. I was impressed by the cat scan technology and the careful attention to detail during the placement of my implants. This was truly a life changing experience for me!"

Mary H, O.D.

"I became a patient in the year 2004 and was referred by another patient who had full mouth rehabilitation work done and her smile looked great. I was very impressed by the technology and very pleased with my end results. I wanted a white pepsodent smile and I have it again. The whole process went very quickly and after Dr. Gardner corrected my bite, all of my neck and jaw pain went away. I love the look of my teeth and I feel good all of the time."

Dora H.

"I became a patient in 1996. I believe Dr. Gardner’s office very honest and friendly. You make me feel like I am part of your family by knowing me by my name when I walk in your office. It really means a lot! I had full mouth reconstruction done. I was impressed by how quickly and meticulously the work was done. I really appreciated you standing behind a cost quote even though the bill ran over. My beautiful crown work you gave me I feel will last the rest of my life. My smile has never looked better and I also enjoy eating apples and corn on the cob. THANK YOU very much to you and your staff."

Susan E.

"Dr. Gardner's injections are completely painless, which is something I have never experienced before. I now have an attractive smile so I am no longer self conscious in social settings. My confidence has therefore improved. I smile wider and laugh more!"

Bridget G.

"What brought me into the office was the fact that I felt so embarrassed to smile that I never showed my teeth in pictures. When I came in, I fell in love with the staff at my office. Everyone treats you like family there, and I couldn’t wait for them to place my braces. Now my smile is perfect and I love to show it off! This experienced has changed my life, and I feel very confident. I can’t stop smiling and in pictures I am the one with the biggest smile!"

Byron R.

"My family has been coming to see Dr. Gardner for my whole life. I had braces put on and also had an impacted tooth removed. The work was so great; I finally felt a sense of relief. My favorite part of coming to the office was that I was treated like family. I love my straight teeth and having such a wonderful smile!"

Cathy J.

"At the time in which I started coming to your office, I was having constant trouble with dentures. They were loose and constantly having issues with them. I was self-conscious; I would not go out to eat with others, watched what I ate, and knew what not to try. Implants were put in on the top and bottom and new dentures were made.

I think it is a wonderful practice! All my reservations, doubts and fears were handled in a way that I did not feel embarrassed.

My very last visit, when I could tell that it had all come together, the self-consciousness I felt just washed away in that moment, and I could not stop smiling. I had a tendency not to smile before as I was afraid someone would know I was wearing dentures. I laugh more, and I eat more of the foods I enjoy, not the ones that are just safe to eat. I have also noticed a couple of folks with similar issues, and have assured them it can get better, and recommended your office."

Charles B.

"I started coming to see Dr. Gardner in the fall of 2007. I had crowns and bridges placed and also had a partial denture made. Everyone in the office was very professional, thorough and friendly. Every time I came into the office, the staff was exceptionally courteous and welcoming. I loved that they guaranteed their work, and did and amazing job giving me a great smile."

Christel W.

"My husband told me about this office. Dr. Gardner assessed my bite and confirmed that I had issues that could easily be fixed. I was very tender in my jaws and there was a lot of pain prior to seeing Dr. Gardner. With Dr. Gardner’s technology, they were able to accurately address issues with my bite. For my treatment, we did an occlusal analysis and adjusted my bite to a more ideal situation. All of my crowns that had been done in the past were way too big and were causing lots of issues. I was getting headaches, clenching and grinding. Dr. Gardner really helped with these problems. I loved coming to the office. Everyone is kind and professional. They are very caring and personable. Every office visit is great. Care is always taken to make sure I am comfortable and I feel like I know everyone personally. The receptionists are always friendly. They do a great job with sending reminders for my upcoming appointments."

Cindy A.

"I came into the office because I wanted my front teeth to be straight. I met with Dr. Gardner, and we decided that wire braces would be the best option for me. The whole team have treated me with care, dignity and made me feel like I am part of the family. When I informed the staff that my husband had passed away, the office staff, as well as Dr. Gardner showed great empathy and made me feel cared for. That means a lot. Because of the attention to making sure I was comfortable and not in pain, I no longer have a fear of dentistry! Now that my teeth are corrected I have confidence to smile without covering my mouth!"

Dyvette W.

"I knew I needed to see a dentist because I had been suffering with stained, darkened, chipped teeth and chronic headaches. I decided to see Dr. Gardner after doing extensive research, and seeing the results of his work on a dear friend’s beautiful smile. Dr. Gardner and his staff provided a warm, welcoming, and professional environment. This is a team dedicated to helping others. They helped with my diagnosis, comfort, treatment plan, and answering all of my questions and concerns. I had 20 year old dental work repaired. Veneers placed on my upper teeth, and an extensive evaluation of my bite which lead to the treatment of a very small bite guard which resolved the headaches I would awake with every morning. The amazing staff with their kind voices, always assured me and helped me through the transition of having the temporary teeth in place while waiting for the veneers, which came quickly. Because of the work I had done I now have more confidence, a big beautiful smile, and my children and friends constantly say how much better my teeth look. Some people look with wonder and can’t quite figure out what I have had done with my teeth. They simply say I look great. Thank you so much for providing me with an amazing smile and pain free mornings."

Hollis E.

"Everyone in the office was very friendly and professional. I could tell that they put a lot of effort into keeping their system organized and their facility clean. I loved that Dr. Gardner would take the time to fully explain my situation and offer his recommendations as well as other options. I was able to schedule procedures that fit into my schedule as well as my budget and I am very grateful for that."

Jason S.

"I first became a patient in 2007. I loved the fact that Dr. Gardner would call to check on me after the treatments I had. Dr. Gardner is more than an 8 to 5 dentist, he really cares about his patients! The most valued benefit I have received from Dr. Gardner’s office is how to keep up with my oral health and know how important it is."

Cindy D.

"I first came to Dr. Gardner’s office in 1995 because I had been awakened by a terrible dental pain in the middle of the night. Dr. Gardner talked to me and helped me find the best solution to correct the issue. A few years later I had dental implants placed and they have been wonderful. Dr. Gardner walked me through each phase of the procedure and helped me understand the benefits. Dr. Gardner’s staff of professionals are friendly and courteous. Everyone calls me by name and makes me feel like an extension of their office family. They are very dedicated to their patients. Because of Dr. Gardner and his wonderful staff my confidence has soared, and I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am!"

Joseph C.

"I came into the office for a routine check-up and noticed a flyer with information about sleep apnea and appliances that are used to help with it. I spoke with Dr. Gardner, and I was able to take home one of the appliances to see if it would help me sleep better. My wife reported that I snored less after using the appliance, and that was great news to hear! Everyone in the office is very friendly and accommodating to my needs and I always leave with a positive experience. Whenever I come to the office there is little to no wait time and I greatly appreciate that."

Nancy R.

"I started as a patient when Dr. Gardner was 28! My husband and I have been very pleased with our help from both Dr. Gardner and his wonderful staff. We felt like we were treated in the best interest. When my husband and I come into the office, we are always greeted as though we are friends. Anytime we have needed special attention, we felt it was a pleasure to be there. Dr. Gardner placed crowns on all of my teeth. Everyone compliments on how pretty my smile is and how pretty my teeth are! That makes me feel really good. Thank you all so much!"

Taylor G.

"I came into the office because I wanted to fix my front teeth and have a better smile. I had 6 veneers placed, and now my smile looks great. I wish I would have done this 10 years ago! Because of Dr. Gardner and his staff I now have the ability to smile and not feel uncomfortable about my teeth. Thank you very much!"

Lisa P.

"For several years I had put off seeing a dentist due to previous bad and painful experiences. I decided to try Dr. Gardner because I heard that he was very gentle, patient and had compassion for his patients. I remember thinking to myself, “I’m going to the dentist and I will not be in pain.” and “My problem will be addressed.” If there is a will, Dr. Gardner and his staff will find a way! After every oral surgery I was given explicit post-op instructions. They gave me Dr. Gardner’s cell phone number to call if needed. I never had to call him, but HE did call me after each and every procedure to check on me. He really cares about his patients. My self-confidence is back, and I am more social. No longer do I fear having dental work done. I know I am in good hands and could not ask for better. They really are the BEST!"

Zach G.

"I came into the office because I wanted to have straighter teeth. I met with Dr. Gardner, and we decided that having braces placed would be the best option. Two years later I got my braces off and I was very happy to see a positive result! Because of my braces I have improved teeth and an improved smile! I was also able to have my teeth whitened after my braces were removed and now I love smiling for pictures!"

Beth C.

"My visit was outstanding. Best visit at the dentist office in my entire life! Dr. Gardner and his staff are excellent at thwat they do in their jobs and excellent at making you feel comfortable. What I used to dread and sometimes avoid, I'll never miss another dentist apointment again!!"

Wanda P.

"I have had chronic headaches and migraine headaches for years along with facial and ear pain, clenching of my teeth, difficulty chewing and muscular neck and cervical pain. I've seen arious specialists, but that pain continued. A few months ago I was told I had a TMJ disorder and was looking at surgery to correct it. That's when my physician referred my to Dr. Gardner for TMJ treatment without surgery. At my first visit, Dr. Gardner and his staff all made me feel very comfortable. To assist in relaxing my very tense facial muscles, a Tens procedure was used that not only relaxed the muscles in my face, but allowed me to open my mouth fully without pain. It relaxed my entire body and I felt calm and at ease and did not experience any pain during that visit."

Kellie W.

"The thought of having a root canal terrified me, but Comprehensive Dental Center was so gentle and understanding. The process went smoothly and the pain was minimal. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a pleasant dental experience."

Sonya Y.

"Coming in I had tension in my neck, shoulders, face and clenching a lot. The tens machine started to help relieve that tension and relax the muscles after the tens therapy and massage chair my entire body was relaxed and muscles were fluid feeling in place of the rigid, tight feeling when I came in."

Laura H.

"Before I came to MCDC for my TMJ, my head, face and neck hurt all the time. My jaw would get super hot to the touch and my cheek would be red and puffy. I couldn't eat very much. My jaw would lock up and I would have to take my hands and move my jaw. I had headaches every day and my eyeball hurt. Now after receiving my orthotic and having two adjustments, my headaches are almost non-existent and my eye doesn't hurt. I look forward to eating and can eat more varities of food. My neck and shoulders feel better too."

Shay W.

"Throughout my experience here, I have gotten a lot better. My jaw doesn't pop anymore and it's easier to eat. I feel 90% better. You guys really made me feel at home."

Dina S.

"NuCalm helped me to feel less anxious about my dental work. I am extremely anxious when it comes to any dental work at all and knowing I would receive NuCalm before my work, I was able to face my fear of having a root canal."
